I am tentatively scheduled to fly once per week from May - Oct year around, except for holidays. The winter months can be some of the smoothest flying through the year. The Airplane is heated so you can enjoy the flights during the winter months.

IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?
We require all passengers to be able to sit in a seat without the need of a booster or a child car seat. We recommend that all passengers are at least 5 years or older– mostly because of the noise.
what is the cost of a flight?
A flight fee is the combination of aircraft rental fee(fuel and tax inclusive), landing fee, parking fee, and pre-heating fee(optional for winter flights). Most of Airports in MA waived landing fee for small aircrafts. Parking fee is around $15 - $30 contingent to location.
Aircraft rental fee is charging by engine hour, that says, aircraft idle on the ground won't cost a penny. Aircraft Rental fee various by aircraft type. Cessna 172 G1000 normally cost $210/engine hour. Cessna 182 cost $260/engine hour.
Fee is split among passengers.
